At last a human has moved into the great house. The gargoyle longs for companionship but does not quite know how to reach out. He watches, waits and makes mischief until he is captivated by a silver spoon. The path to friendship is unlikely and just right, like the friendship that develops between a refined elderly lady and a creature fashioned from stone.
